Terri went to be with her Lord and Savior on September 29, 2013 after over 30 years of battling cancer. Terri was born on May 22, 1969 in Laurel, Miss. to the union of Thomas and Virginia Frost Holifield. Terri was an inspiration to many she came in contact with throughout her life's journey, especially the children and their families, nurses and doctors at St. Jude's Hospital while she was a patient there. She inspired many through the "I Wish I Could" Foundation. Terri didn't let the trials of life get her spirits down as she took each day God gave her as a blessing.
Terri was preceded in death by her mother, Virginia Frost Holifield and brother, Scott Holifield.
Survivors include her loving husband of 25 years, Kevin Potter who tirelessly stood by her during these many years of illness. She is also survived by her father, Tom Holifield; sisters, Vicky Runninger (Bob), and Traci Oetgen (Eddie); children, Kevin Cheyenne Potter, Terri Diane Potter and Dakato Potter; nephew Charlie Oetgen and numerous nieces and nephews.
Pallbearers will be Roy Sivils, David Speir, Lewis Knighten, Eddie Oetgen, Tony Kitchens and Charlie Oetgen.
